Recently I was invited to the opening of In Situ Design a new design concept showroom and shop in Singapore focussing on art and interior design. It is a collaboration between creative director Isabelle Persenda and Eric Ledoigt who founded In Situ in Guatemala. In Situ features creative concepts by talented international designers and artists.
Above and below you can also see 2 artworks from a German artist, made out of nails. Both depicting faces and they need to be seen from a further distance than on these photos. They look spectacular.
The showroom showcases handcrafted pieces, including furniture, decorations, antiques, soft furnishings and art pieces. The showroom embodies a style of living, inspired by Isabelle herself, with a striking interior design and a warm, soulful ambience. The bespoke fittings complete the scene and highlight the creative collection.
Key items in the collection include sofas, armchairs, coffee tables, consoles and a limited collection of antique pieces, striking the ideal balance between modern and vintage. In Situ also features bedspreads and bed covers, soft furnishings and tablemats – all handmade, handcrafted or hand-woven on loom from 100% cotton, as well as coasters, wall ornaments and gold-leaf items. In Situ also provides personalised home interior design consultancy services to help their clients to visualise, choose and create their desired habitats.
Of course I was interested in the fashion on display too! Here is blogger buddy Paula looking fabulous in a dress.
Love to wear a little black dress? Make it look amazing with the addition of a stand-out bag. I love her Issey Miyake Bao Bao bag, which is now also on my wish list. Really digging her haircut too!
Two more fabulous ladies. The woman in front was wearing some killer heals, wich unfortunately is not captured in this image. She looked great in her colorful peplum. And what a great hair color does the lady in the back have!
Here is a better view of that remarkable table.
You all know the fabulous Anja who was looking as colorful as ever.
I loved this assymetrical dress from local label Saturday which is so beautifully paired with the hip shoes. Also note the painting in the back. That would be a great talking piece for your living room!
The picture below looks like a necklace but is actually an art piece for your wall and is more than 1m wide (pictures can be deceiving).
Some further impressions from the show room…
Designer Eric Ledoigt together with the PR agent, looking very chic in her textured dress.
They had a lot of beautiful things at In situ and I really love their aesthetic. If you love orginial design and beautiful interiors then I would encourage you to give In Situ a visit. They can be found at: 238 River Valley Road in Singapore and are open from Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 7 pm and Sunday from 12 to 5 pm. For more info you can also visit their Facebook page.
